View Comments (


    Spark is the only U.S. program that addresses the dropout crisis by engaging middle school students in hands-on apprenticeships. Spark’s unique volunteer-at-your-desk model turns working professionals into mentors who help students learn how their interests, career goals and education all intersect in a real workplace. Spark Los Angeles launched in 2010, and by the end of 2013, will have served more than 500 students thanks to local support from schools, corporations, foundations and volunteer mentors.
